Description

Overview

A Ph.D. by Portfolio/ Published or Creative Work is designed for individuals with an existing portfolio of published work addressing a central research question. A Ph.D. by Portfolio program can be completed within one year. This degree will be awarded to a candidate who has critically investigated an approved topic and demonstrated an understanding of research methods appropriate to the chosen field. A submission for Ph.D. by Published or Creative Work may comprise of academic papers, chapters, monographs, scholarly editions of texts, creative practice, artifacts, or curatorial production.

This Ph.D. option is particularly well suited to professionals who have been developing a research career and whose research skills and academic expertise are already at the doctoral level. Our Ph.D. by prior publication/portfolio will typically take one year. The Ph.D. degree is offered by our Swiss EduQua-approved awarding body partner which is in consonance with many other universities such as the University of Warwick, Glasgow, Birmingham, Leeds, Reading, Surrey, East Anglia, Bristol, etc. The doctoral research submission will involve a series of articles usually with a common theme that is published in scholarly, peer-reviewed journals to meet the requirements for the degree, in lieu of the presentation of a final dissertation.





Why Ph.D. by Portfolio?

It is a much quicker way of obtaining a Ph.D. degree; traditional Ph.D. programs take between three and four years from registration to completion whereas you can get a Ph.D. by publication within one year of registration with the University or awarding body, assuming that you enroll on this degree has already published all the papers that you will include in your portfolio of work.

The shorter duration means that you often will only have to pay for one year of awarding the body fees, meaning that this approach is cheaper than a traditional method. It’s often possible that you can work any part-time job alongside preparing your publication portfolio for viva examination submission.
